We decided to add a twist to these jalapeno appetizers today.  We have always filled our jalapenos with cheese or cheese and sausage but we thought it might be fun to make chicken poppers.    And since our Chicken bundles are so popular we thought we would also use canned chicken to make chicken poppers.  Then we really upped the flavor by adding even more bacon in the stuffing.
